The experience

Our ecotourism project provides a sustainable income for our members which helps us to protect and conserve the mangrove forests.  Ecotourism in a place like Bocas del Atrato is very labour intensive, we are constantly having to maintain our infrastructure and improve the service we can offer visitors.  We therefore need help and support from volunteers. Sometimes volunteers will focus on a specific project, but often they carry out a variety of tasks depending on where the need is.

We request a minimum stay of 1 week for our volunteers, ideally 2 weeks. 

Included: dorm accommodation and three meals a day during your stay.

Not included: travel to reach Bocas del Atrato (*we can provide help with logistics on request), travel insurance.
